A few months ago Admiral Sims made
damaging charges against Mr. Daniels,
Secretary of the Navy, and the latter
countered by making similar charges
against Admnal Sims. We have read
most of the testimony taken by a Senate
committee which spent considerable time
in an effort to place the blame for wrong
doing, if any there had been, where it
belongs. Both of the contestants testified
before the committee and to the shame of
both it may be said that neither of them
added to his reputation. Indeed it can be
said that occasionally the controversy
descended to the level of a spat* between
two irate school boys. Some of the testi
mony showed Admiral Sims in a very bad
light and, in two instances at least, that
the neglect of Secretary Daniels to do the
right thing at the right time was abso
lutely inexcusable. It appears that on
one occasion Admiral Sims cabled the
navy department that after a stated date
a submarine might be expected in Ameri
can waters to sink shipping. Sec’y Dan
iels gave no prompt warning. American
vessels were allowed to sail to the waters
threatened and within three days after
the date named ten American ships were
sunk and a few days after a few survivors
reached port and then Sec’y Daniels woKe
up and a warning was issued. A month
later Admiral Sims sent another cable
gram saying that another U boat was
coming about three weeks later, and for
the second time no warning was given
Six days after the day named, the sub
marine had arrived, and began to sink
vessels. It is said, on what seems to us
to be good authority, that the two warn
ing cablegrams are on record in the navy
depirtment. If they are on record and
Mr. Daniels did not at least issue warning
his neglect was worse than inexcusable.
Whatever the facts may be in the Sims
Daniels controversy it is safe to say that
if we were about to engage in another
trans-Atlantic war, it is extremely un
likely that the people of the United
States would desire either of these word
warriors to have any part in the prepara
tion, disposition or control of the Ameri
can navy.
Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler of New
York, President of Columbia University,
has stated that a “motley group of stock
gamblers, oil and mining promoters, mu
nition makers, and other like persons”
backed Gen. Wood’s campaign for the
Republican presidential nomination, and
started out to purchase it for him. To
this statement Gen. Wood has replied by !
saying that it is a “vicious and malicious
falsehood,” and added that it was neces
sary to “brand a faker and denounce a
lie ’ If they have not yet done so, these
two explosive gentlemen will some day
realize that by reason of the above state
ments they have fallen greatly in the i
estimation of the people of the United
States. Both of them have taken the
short road out of politics. It is well
known that Gen. Wood’s managers spent
a large sum of money in his behalf. One
witness before the committee which in
vestigated the matter confessed that he
had contributed half a million dollars to
the Wood campaign fund. There was no
evidence whatever which tended to show
that a dollar of the Wood campaign fund
came from the “motley crew” or that a
dollar was used for unlawful or corrupt
purposes. If Dr. Butler has discovered
any evidence to substantiate his state
ment, to save his own reputation, he
should lose no time in putting it before
the public. We had a strenuously con
tested pre-convention campaign, but dur
ing its progress neither did any candidate
nor did any prominent man among their
adherents, cast >ny reflection upon any
public or private act of Gen. Wood. We
believe Gen. Wood is an honest man We
feel that he made a mistake, fatal to his
candidacy, when he allowed anyone to
make a large donation to his campaign
fund, and we fear that his failure to make
a calm and dignified denial of the charges
of Dr. Butler was a mistake which will be
remembered after the other has been for

Granges at Burnham village June 9th.

were highly appreciated, especially by
those who had arrived by train after a
hastily eaten breakfast.

A reading by Vina cole was roiiowea
with a short talk by E. E. Davis on the
subject “What will Keep the World from
Starvation, if the Farmer is Compelled to
Adopt the Eight-hour Day?” Dean Mer
rill was introduced at this point and gave
a tine address, his subject being, “Agri
cultural Education.” He reviewed the
agricultural work of the State Universi
ty from the time of its institution, con
trasting the merely theoretic practice of
the early days with the practical work
now being done by agricultural students.
He also gave figures showing the good
work done by the extension college
through county agents. His remarks
were received with appreciation and the
usual courtesies extended to him.
A vocal duet by Verdilla Pease and
Vina Cole, with a piano accompaniment
by Rose Cray received merited applause.
A five-minute talk, Some features of
conservation made necessary by the war
that should be retained, by Maude Mud
gelt, was full of sensible suggestions and
she closed her remarks with an appro
priate poetic selection.
The topic, Does the farmer understand
the cost of production as well as he should
in order to demand a fair price for his
products? was opened by F. A. McAllister
and the discussion was continued by E
T. Gilbert, E. E. Davis, Dean Merrill and
Worthy Master W'ebb. All who spoke
were of the opinion t at if the farm ac
counts system, introduced by county
agents, is adopted generally by the farmer
he will have a bet'er idea of the business
side of farming.
ine literary exercises were concluded
with the closing of the discussion and
the customary vote of thanks was ex
tended to the entertaining granges for
their hospitality.

Belfast People Should Not Neglect Their
No kidney ailment is unimportant.
Don’t overlook the slightest backache or
urinary irregularity. Nature may be warn
ing you of approaching dropsy, gravel or
Bright’s disease. Kidney disease is sel
dom fatal if treated in time, but neglect
may pave the way. Don’t neglect a lame
or aching back another day. Don’t ignore
dizzy spells, headaches, weariness or de
pression. If you feel you need kidney
help begin using the reliable, time-tried
remedy, Doan’s Kidney Pills. For 50 years
Doan’s have been found effective. En
dorsed by Belfast people.
